Hi does anyone know what this silver bush is. Its growing in our local park all on its own so i think its been dropped by a bird and germinated. Its about 3foot high. Not seen any flowers on it yet.

Are you thinking of lavatera Nosey? The leaves are a similar shape but not usually so silvery.

Could it be the white (aka silver ) poplar?

Yes with no flowers white poplar is probably more likely than my lavatera answer
